False Mea Culpas from Bush & OJ

Karma is a debt that must be paid. OJ Simpson was reduced to tears and begging the judge for leniency at his sentencing hearing today. He had been found guilty for a dozen counts related to armed robbery and kidnapping. He might be eligible for parole in 9 years but I honestly don't see him getting out. So many people want to see him under the jailhouse for his role in the slaying of his ex-wife. Hmm, Johnny Cochran was a brilliant lawyer. 

OJ should have recognized the gift he'd been given with the unrestricted support he'd received from the Black community. He had been seen as a symbol for all those Black men who've historically been falsely accused, tried and murdered for crimes they had not committed. Black women foolishly defended a criminally-minded, self-hating and dangerous Black man and embued him with qualities he never had. So many of us still do this and it is to our detriment. Our only fortune was that he went right back to his white skin love and abandoned 'us' once again. He never learned the art of self-reflection or humility and continually escalated the behavior that would land him right back in the system. So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye - and good riddance.

War crimes (also known as torture and murder)
Bankrupting the country
Borrowing more money than we'll ever be to repay
Continuing to be clueless and not giving a damn - check, check check!

Now here's a man that should be in a prison cell right next to the Juice but justice truly is blind. Listening to this excerpt from the Dec 2nd interview with Charles Gibson I am floored. This man does not WANT to get it. The destruction has clearly been revealed for all to see. He made decisions that have caused irrevocable harm but because he has no conscience he is totally able to sleep at night. That is truly evil. 

Did I forget to mention how there's always some woman in the mix making excuses for the man she 'loves' no matter what he does. Yet Barbara Bush is afforded a level of respectability a drug dealer's partner would never get. There are a lot of women sitting in prison now because they turned a blind eye to the criminal acts of their partners. When will we ever learn?

Hello there, Faith!

"...auf wiedersehen..."

{gales of laughter}

Thank you for providing my morning laugh! LOL! Yep. OJ just can't believe that his beloved White folks HATE him with a passion. And, unlike us, they have a LONG memory. After his acquittal, OJ should have done what even the deranged Michael Jackson had the sense to do: leave the US.

Peace, blessings and solidarity.

I feel bad that his daughter Sydney was in the courtroom with him though. I can't imagine what it would be like to have grown up under all that chaos and anger. The Goldmans were there too. I feel for them but I also am wary of their motives.
